Softly falls the light of day,
While our campfire fades away.
Silently each scout should ask:
"Have I done my daily task?
Have I kept my honor bright?
Can I guiltless sleep tonight?
Have I done and have I dared
In everything to be prepared.?"
Listen Lord, oh listen Lord,
As I whisper soft and low,
Bless my Mom and bless my Dad,
There is something they should know.
I have kept my honor bright.
The Oath and Law has been my guide.
Mom and Dad, this you should know,
Deep in my heart I love you so.
Softly falls the rain today
As our campsite floats away,
Silently each Scout should ask,
Have I brought my scuba mask?
Have I tied my tent flaps down,
Learned to swim so I don't drown,
Have I done and will I try,
Everything to keep me dry?
